Goodyear Expands DuraSeal Technology to Severe-Service Tires

August 15, 2006

AKRON, OHIO – The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company will expand its self-sealing commercial tire technology to include more mixed-service tires for vehicles that require maximum off-road traction. DuraSeal Technology will be available in Unisteel G177 severe-service drive tires.The tire also features high-tear strength tread compound to help resist rubber chipping and chunking. An Enhanced Casing Design helps improve strength, puncture-resistance, and retreadability. The technology — previously only available in Unisteel G287 MSA and G288 MSA mixed-service tires — allows tires to remain in service. They can be retreaded and retain sealing effectiveness.The gel-like, solvent-free compound built into the inner liner of the tire consistently and instantly seals punctures up to ¼ inch in the tread area.Available in sizes 11R22.5 H, 11R24.5 H and 12R22.5 H, the G177 mixed-service tire featuring DuraSeal Technology is manufactured in Goodyear’s Danville, Va., plant. A 12R24.5 H size will be available in September.
